A one day workshop
for women, pregnant or planning to be, and birthworkers.
With Jane Hardwicke Collings
and Graduate Teachers
This workshop focuses on the shamanic dimensions of pregnancy, in other words: what lay beneath…
With prior preparation contemplating our life experiences, we will do some shamanic processes to understand the origins of our beliefs, attitudes and fears around birth, seeing the connection between how we were born, our menarche (first period) and the stories about the women in our family, as well as any experiences of pregnancy and giving birth we have had so far.
Then a Letting Go of Fear process and fire ritual and a shamanic drum journey to meet the baby, soul baby or Inner Goddess, to seek guidance, clarity, information etc.
This workshop is for all women. You don’t have to be pregnant or planning to be and there is no prior experience necessary.
*Bring a cushion to sit on, a wrap, your journal and a pen.
Thank you so much for the amazing workshop you held for us the other week. I walked away feeling that I had really shifted into the spiritual essence of the pregnancy. Since then I have felt like I have been in a really beautiful headspace having shifted the remaining fears that were lingering. I wish every pregnant mum to be could do your class. It would give birth a completely different meaning. Shifting it from medical to naturally spiritual and a beautiful journey. Thank you so much.
Your workshop was absolutely amazing and filled in the gaps for me - I was missing something! Birth is designed to be a spiritual experience, but like anything we need to work through so much history and be in tune with ourselves, our mothers and sisters, and in harmony with the earth. I am really excited about learning more and clearing and empowering myself for my next birth, and understanding how we as women can regain the power and mystery designed to come to us with birth, so that I can help spread the word.
I came into the Shamanic Midwifery course without expectations. I had been to previous birth education courses and had read several books in preparation for the birth of my first baby, but this day workshop took my experience of pregnancy and the connection to my unborn baby to a new level. I was able to safely express even my most subconscious fears of birth and beyond and let them go, setting myself free to enjoy and celebrate this pregnancy even more than before! Thank you Jane and all the girls who helped to create a circle of the divine feminine, a sacred safe space and a journey into our inner core that was fun, poignant and unforgettable.
